ENCORE, is all about reuse and development of Open Educational Resources (OER). It has released a series of  Open Badges to recognise the contributions of educators to Open Education, these are:

– Aware: This badge acknowledges the interest in Open Education principles and practices.

– Explorer: This badge signifies active exploration of Open Education Practices and engagement with the community.

– Practitioner: This badge recognises the integration of Open Education Practices into teaching and learning activities.

– Expert: This badge denotes advanced expertise in Open Education and leadership within the community.

These badges have been produced using ORCA (Open Recognition Community App) a novel application that fosters a collaborative environment where participants can contribute to the development and validation of badges, ensuring their relevance and authenticity. This community-driven approach empowers educators to shape the recognition system, providing a sense of ownership and shared purpose.
